Are You on YouTube?
Just a quick hello and a quick question:
Are YOU on YouTube?
I had done very little with my 3 YouTube Channels for the last 3 years... until last month when I did a 30-Day Challenge where I had to create content every day - written posts for the first half of the Challenge and video posts for the second half.
I did my best to create videos to embed in all the written posts as well.
And I managed to upload 23 videos to my Digital Entrepreneur Channel in October. (I made a mistake and uploaded 1 video to my Inspiring Mompreneurs Channel. Oops!)
Results of Publishing Regularly on YouTube
I've been encouraged by the results.
In October, I gained 25 subscribers on my channel (I had 2 subscribers when I started and by the end of the Challenge I had 27).
And YouTube sent me this cool email on 7th November. Now for a seasoned YouTuber, I'm sure this is like a drop in the ocean... but hey, I'm excited!!
It's the first month that I felt I was finally on the map!
I've discovered that just like blogging, it's best to prepare yourself for the long game on YouTube. Don't expect instant results.
The secret is to add videos frequently and consistently.
It's been months since I started going video in April this year.
And though I'd dabbled with a few videos on social media, (which I also uploaded to this Channel). this is the first time I've been consistently uploading content to YouTube.
The 30-Day Challenge ended on 30th October, and I've continued creating videos and uploading them this week. And I've gained another 3 subscribers to my Channel.
I also gained some new email subscribers and plenty of clicks on my affiliate links - though no affiliate sales as yet. (We live in hope).
I'm encouraged by the growth though and excited at growing my star online. Here we go!
My new goal?
100 Videos in 100 Days
Would any of you like to join me? Would you like to start seeing some traction on your YouTube Channel? Would you like to be more visible online?
